The Search for Felafel


Posted By on Jun 12, 2011 in Blogs, O2 Vegan Blog | 2 comments

In my last post, I mentioned my friend Assim and our common passion for felafel. I haven’t had a good felafel in a long time.

I am told that I am an ambitious person. I am not sure that that is true. I do know that I am not often satisfied. That is not to say that I don’t find satisfaction in my work and with my family. It is more of a feeling that I want to continue to push myself. I get nervous when things get too easy and comfortable.
